Mediatek has just announced a new SoC oriented to mid-range smartphones that includes 5G connectivity, with a download speed that can reach 2.3 Gbps, called MediaTek Dimensity 720.
A chip that looks like an evolution of Helium G90T but adopts the 7 nm TSMC manufacturing process with all the improvements this brings in the area of power consumption and increased clock speeds. Otherwise few novelties in a fairly continuous SoC.
The MediaTek Dimensity 720 is a Octa Core SoC with 2 high-performance ARM Cortex-A76 processors that reach 2 GHz + 4 low-power ARM Cortex-A55 processors that reach 2 GHz peak speed and a Mediatek APU for iA acceleration. The GPU is a Mali-G57 MP3 ARM that provides support for displays up to 2520 x 1080 pixels resolution and 90 Hz refresh rate.
This chip also supports up to 12 GB LPDDR4x, UFS 2.2 storage memory and includes GPS, WiFi 5 and Bluetooth 5.1 as standard. In the field of cameras, it can handle up to two cameras at a time with 20MP+16MP sensors or one 64MP camera.
- Mediatek has not yet announced the launch date of the MediaTek Dimensity 720 SoC, but it will surely arrive on the market this summer in some mid-range smartphones.
